Foolproof Banana Bread

I wasn't a fan of banana bread before until I tasted the one that my mentor made. She kindly shared her recipe with me, which I've tested for many many times. I only made a little change by reducing the amount of sugar and adding blueberries. If you never make banana bread before, give this recipe a try and you wouldn't want to buy from the store again.

Quick and Easy Dish: Broiled Cod or Salmon

This is one of the Quick and Easy dish that I have cook whenever I have less than 30 minutes to put meal on the table. I usually use either cod or salmon fillet (I got mine from Trader Joe's)
Place, the fish on top of baking dish then dry both side of the fish fillet with paper towel.
Season both sides

Broiled in the oven for 12-15 minutes depends on how hot is your oven

Roasted Okra

I have been hearing the health benefit of okra so when I saw them at local's Farmer's Market, I couldn't wait to cook with them. My last attempt of cooking them wasn't so successful. None of us like its slimy texture so this time I tried roasting them in the oven. No more slimy texture and even the boys can eat them. Yes!

First thing first: rinse them then let them dry
Cut them into smaller pieces

How to make cold brew coffee

 How to make cold brew iced coffee
A few years ago my friend, Myrna shared with me a cup of cold brew coffee she made. It was perfect. She used the Pioneer Woman's recipe. The next morning and every morning after, I  almost always start my day with a cup of cold brew coffee. During cold season, I would skip the ice and warm up the coffee in the microwave.
